Morning all

Hope you have all had as good a Christmas as you could have, think i did a bit too much with seeing Grandchildren and family but it was nice to see them all, back is in agony today though, so a nice restful day for me, got my 3rd assessment 2 weeks today (on a Sunday) wonder if they ever will put me in the support group, also got a work related interview on the 13th, it never ends and i struggle to get there, been going on for 2 years now, errrm arthritis doesnt get better, in fact thats whats causing all the back pain now as its moved into my back as well as my hips, but because i can move from one chair to another i am capable of work, only 4 more years to my retirement and if the Goverment hadnt fastracked that by 6 years i would be retired now, oh well onwards and upwards, have a good day all

  • I think it's got to a stage where they just don't care , stupid Goverment, if one of them had it, I wonder how long it would take to get it passed by the Morons . Hope you get a better outcome this time, and wish you well.xx
